Molecular evidence for a role for K(+)-Cl(-) cotransporters in the kidney.
Mexico City, Mexico. In Am J Physiol Renal Physiol, Dec 2013
K(+)-Cl(-) cotransporter (KCC) isoforms 3 (KCC3) and 4 (KCC4) are expressed at the basolateral membrane of proximal convoluted tubule cells, and KCC4 is present in the basolateral membrane of the thick ascending loop of Henle's limb and α-intercalated cells of the collecting duct.
Functional significance of channels and transporters expressed in the inner ear and kidney.
Tübingen, Germany. In Am J Physiol Cell Physiol, 2007
Defective connexins (GJB2 and GJB6), pendrin (SLC26A4), K(+) channels (KCNJ10, KCNQ1, KCNE1, and KCNMA1), Na(+)-2Cl(-)-K(+) cotransporter (SLC12A2), K(+)/Cl(-) cotransporters (KCC3 and KCC4), Cl(-) channels (BSND and CLCNKA + CLCNKB), and H(+)-ATPase (ATP6V1B1 and ATPV0A4) cause hearing loss.
Molecular genetics of bipolar disorder and depression.
Wako, Japan. In Psychiatry Clin Neurosci, 2007
Several candidate genes for schizophrenia may also be associated with bipolar disorder: G72, DISC1, NRG1, RGS4, NCAM1, DAO, GRM3, GRM4, GRIN2B, MLC1, SYNGR1, and SLC12A6.
[Molecular genetics of inherited neuropathies].
Kagoshima, Japan. In Rinsho Shinkeigaku, 2006
Genetic studies have revealed the following gene mutations as the causes of inherited neuropathies; PMP22, MPZ, EGR2, SOX10, SIMPLE/LITAF, ARHGEF10 for CMT1 (autosomal dominant demyelinating form); GDAP1, MTMR2, SBF2/MTMR13, KIAA1985, NDRG1 PRX for CMT4 (autosomal recessive demyelinating form), MFN2, KIF1B, RAB7, GARS, NEFL, HSPB1, HSPB8 for CMT2 (autosomal dominant axonal form); LMNA, GAN1, KCC3, TDP1, APTX, SETX for AR-CMT2 (autosomal recessive axonal form); GIB1 for CMTX (X-linked CMT); DNM2 for CMT-DI (autosomal dominant CMT with intermediate nerve conduction velocities); and DHH for minifascicular neuropathy.
